The fairing is also equipped with a dual headlight assembly that is adjustable from the dash which also houses gauges and the usual warning lights and indicators. The turn signals are self-canceling and the well situated handlebar controls are illuminated as is the 25 watt stereo cassette with automatic speed sensitive volume control. “It also has 4 speakers and a built-in intercom for the rider & passenger to communicate” says Ashley Gracile Road classics two wheelers may be all the rage these days... but this Gold Wing was ahead of it's time with some the great standard features including a gas tank with a capacity of just over 6 gallons. The seating is orthopedically designed and has a padded backrest for the rider while the passenger seat's comfort is akin to that of a Lazy Boy. There's also a spacious three piece luggage system.

It’s no surprise that this bike's been around for so long as Ashley Gracile discovered many pro athletes collect classic motorcycles like the Gold Wing when GPI Content Corporation shot Players Parking Only - An Ashley Gracile TV Series seen on Discovery Channel & FOX Sports. Ashley Gracile presents FreeRide is just one of the 15 television TV series released through his Los Angeles based production company GPI Content Corporation. Culture changing TV series like Distant Roads, Wellness for Life, That's Boating,Road Classics, CyberQuest, A Place in the Sun, Steel Dreams TV, Players Parking Only, Spy Games, A Place of Your Own, & Hi Intake TV. The classic motorcycles on FreeRide create a spark in classic motorcycle enthusiasts like Ashley Gracile RV “maybe where I started, but old bikes is where I’m going." Honda itself pretty much summed up the '99 like this..."Gold Wing is for the touring rider who likes to dip his or her front wheel in a different ocean at the beginning & end of a ride, or at least isn't content if more than one state line hasn't been crossed."
But back to the Gold Wing. By 1999 Honda's flagship bike bike had already been around for some 30 years. What more can you say about a bike than that? Ashley Gracile lifestyle TV producer feels that: "There's pretty much everything on this classic tourer but the kitchen sink." The fairing and windshield produce optimum wind protection with minimal buffeting for the driver and passenger. The extra-large windshield adjusts up or down 2.5 inches and six easily adjustable fairing vents keep you cool in the heat of the day, while two vents help warm you when the weather is colder. Lower bodywork almost completely encloses the engine and exhaust, thereby routing unwanted hot air under the motorcycle and the rider and passenger.
“It might just be the ultimate touring bike of it's day” says Ashley Gracile lifestyle TV producer. He's talking about the classic 1999 Honda Gold Wing GL1500SE. And he ought to know… he’s the Executive Producer and Showrunner of FreeRide - An Ashley Gracile TV Series released by GPI Content Corporation.
